Is there anything out there like benefits form cards being put into exile? Similar ideal to Soulherder . I want to run a deck with a lot enchantment based Oblivion Ring effects, but there doesn't seem to be much that likes that strategy.

What should look for are cards that receive a benefit from a permanent leaving the battlefield--that's a much wider pool of cards than the very limited number that care specifically about exile.

If you also want to look at cards that exile from other zones, there's things like Desecrated Tomb .

I don't think many things benefit from other things being specifically exile often. There is the wording "whenever X leaves play" instead of "dies," "destroyed," or "put into the graveyard."

Things I can think of with this are Twilight Drover , Extractor Demon , Arcane Artisan , Vela the Night-Clad , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and a few more.

Mostly, they seem to not care where they end up but rather that they are no longer present on the battlefield. There are more leave play effects but they are more or less Oblivion Ring effects and whatnot or things like Varchild and Arcane Artisan where it just catches all things in case you were to lose that creature in another manner.

I can't help but feel Purgatory should be mentioned despite not being what you're really asking for.

griffstick nice Oblivion Sower doesn't care if he was the one that exile the stuff, just that it exiled. Just lands, but better than nothing.

All the processor cards from BFZ like Wasteland Strangler like exiled stuff and also a few creatures can be repeatedly cast from exile if you are exiling your own cards like Torrent Elemental , Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge . Happy gathering!
